My very favorite Christmas mantels are rustic and jam-packed with organized Christmas clutter!
I started with these five empty crates on the mantel.
The old crates divide the mantel up into several small vignettes. Do you remember my button bingo cards? Since they are mounted to wood, they stand very nicely in one of the crates.
My red thermos collection comes in handy at Christmastime.
The little deer was purchased last Christmas at Hobby Lobby or Michael's.
I added lanterns and a couple of old lunch boxes too.
Like I said, organized clutter.
So that's my Christmas mantel 2014! Happy decorating everybody!
